@barryf @larrylou100 @jonnyhobbo I think most worrying about this is that at some point, you went on the Mirror website!

@BenHobson I was looking for the latest news about X Factor contestants and what Kerry Katona is doing these days.

Apps should not be allowed to say they’re updated for iOS 8 if they don’t support the new display sizes.

Fuzzy upscaled apps on the new iPhone 6/6+ are the new letterboxed 3.5" apps on a 4" screen. Usable but irritating. Can’t wait for updates.

@barryf but it is very thin! :)

@aliaspooryorik Not sure the real one will safely fold in half though!

Just tried out a paper iPhone 6 Plus in my front pocket to see if it fits. Sadly far too big: it peeks out the top. http://ars.to/1lTKZy9

Site update: I now secure all content on here with SSL, including the admin/posting interface.

Unless I’ve missed any hard-coded URLs, everything should be served via https meaning there’s a little green lock icon in your address bar (depending on your browser).

I’ve also been dabbling with Micropub to support external posting from tools like Quill. More on that later.

@barryf Thanks! Probably not using twitter enough to pay for a client, but Transmit looks good!

@stevesmith2609 NP. The official Twitter Mac app’s free and pretty good https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/twitter/id409789998

Also, what's the best ftp client for Mac?

@stevesmith2609 And Transmit would be my choice for FTP/SFTP/S3 http://panic.com/transmit/

@barryf not understanding how twitter works. Bonus idiot points for including hashtags in the image.

@boffbowsh I’m not a fan but it’s an interesting hack especially as it’s then embedded inline on Twitter∙com. Image hashtags: just no.

Is there a name for when you tweet an image of some text, sometimes a short blog post, that wouldn’t fit in a tweet, rather than link to it?

@barryf You don't need to pass email through it do you?

@cronkshaw No, not at all. Free plan to try it out so give it a go (referral link) https://slack.com/r/024sjfpj-026smbgu

@barryf You a @SlackHQ fan? Had a peak at it earlier this week. Perhaps talk to @craftyuk :-)

@cronkshaw We’ve been very happily using it for a few months to replace Campfire and GTalk. Used for all our project and team discussions.

Who needs an email or EchoSign when you’ve got the 👍 emoji in @SlackHQ ? #thumbsup
